Fatima K Lamine in New York for LNC
An internal report elaborated by a panel of UN’s experts to the Security Council
(Some extracts LNC were able to browse through)
“The new government of Faustin-Archange Touadera has limited control outside the capital Bangui and has failed to convince the dozens of armed factions around the country to lay down their weapon.”
“The newly elected Centrafrican government has not been able to come to grips with a deteriorating security situation, observed since June 2016.”
“Since his return, Jean-Francis Bozize has maintained and developed his networks among anti-balaka groups and (army) officers in Bangui. [..] His return is a source of concern for President Touadera and may explain the recent establishment of a presidential security guard.”
What is particularly worrying with such disastrous report, accusing the Government for its continued passivity, is that CAR might face double or even triple penalties: irritating potential donors, and consequently, depriving the country of needed financial support able to fight the rampant insecurity and major humanitarian disasters and human dramas concomitant with poverty.
It also will impact negatively its rating in the business climate – Foreign investors.
